Fast-forward 20 years to the day when I purchased my first fountain pen, the Muji aluminum body fountain pen. I'm not sure where to start with this one. I've always had an affinity for fountain pens but never sought out to own one. Maybe I was too busy in college or to busy at work to cast away my content for the rolling ball. Maybe I was scared I may not like the summit of human communication, was I worthy? Who knows, that question may remain unanswered for another product review.
The Muji is beautiful, well balanced, simple, elegant, stylish, and writes wonderfully. It feels great in my hand and is engineered so well. At the end opposite the nib, there is a thin gap between the aluminum body and the center of the pen. This is where you snap the cap to the back of the pen when posting it. The precise fit on something so thin is, to me, remarkable. This design would be no feat if the pen were plastic, but this is aluminum. The tiny inscription and design on the nib is barely perceivable with the naked eye, but Muji didn't care, it's still there and if you look closely, it's beautiful. There are no logos or stamped trademarks or visible seams on the pen body.
The ink flow from the pen is very smooth, constant, consistent, and dries in a reasonable about of time - probably slower than a rolling ball but not slow enough to where it would be an issue for a right-handed person. If you press hard the nib will open up and give you a fatter stroke, but this isn't a calligraphy pen so I wouldn't recommend doing that constantly. However, the nib can handle the force and snaps back to its designed threshold and stroke. Replacing the cartridges is very easy and surprisingly not messy. One reviewer stated that a spare cartridge can be stored in the body of the pen which is correct.
The pen comes with 3 cartridges that can be tossed away or refilled with a syringe after watching a few youtube videos. I'm still on cartridge number two because I don't use my pen all day long. I only use it to practice my cursive handwriting, to write checks notes to friends, or whatever else I'm jotting down around the house. If you're still reading this, just buy the pen. It's relatively inexpensive, it writes better than any pen I've owned, and I'm always smiling when I use it. Another testament to the awesomeness of this pen is length of this review. Just get it and you won't be disappointed.
Note: I also purchased the Pelikan Ink Converter as suggested by many Muji users on amazon and the Internet but haven't filled it with ink just yet. It seems to snap into place (I tried it empty) and hopefully I will be successful as many others have been.
The matte aluminum body looks attractive in person. One thing I don't like about this aluminum body is when I cap the pen on the end to get ready to write, the edge of the cap and the edge of pen will make a raw scratch sound. Mean the cap edge isn't smooth out. Now I'm picking bones in an egg with this but I feel like it's just an extra step they could've took to smooth out the edges but didn't.
I found no problems gripping this pen. I've read a review prior (from a blog) claiming this is flimsy and felt like it'll fly out of his/her (I don't remember the author) hand. I disagree, it's light but not flimsy. It's actually pretty head heavy. Of course I have nothing else to compare it to because I don't own any other. I got this to help with my tendinitis on my wrist and thumb, a light pen actually makes me want to grip tighter and press harder. (Yes I'm an uptight person...) With this that's not the case, I didn't feel like gripping harder.
The nib is fine, but not a Japanese fine. That I know, I saw writing samples online, it's more like a medium point. The lines are pretty big but for general purposes it'll do fine. The nib is also smooth. I wrote on typical cheap copy paper and a nice piece of notebook paper (not Staples!), the nib glided across both. Suddenly I felt classy, LOL!
Anyways, it's a good looking pen and an overall fine pen. Then again I have nothing to compare this to, the Pilot Metro will arrive tomorrow maybe I'll have a different opinion then. But for now, it's a fun buy from Amazon's fun finds.
So I got my Pilot Metro and Muji both to work. It was about 78 degrees outside this morning. Both pens were inside my backpack, in pen pockets and I found the Metro has a slight leakage when I got to work while the Muji didn't. The leakage isn't bad just annoying, every time I uncapped the pen there will be a spot on the nib. I'm a total control freak, I like my nibs clean and shiny! The Muji seem to handled my commute to work well. I only complaint is that the fine/medium nib isn't fine enough for me. The Muji ink also has bleed through problems on normal/cheap notebook paper. I'll order a few more ink samples to see if dryer ink will help. In the mean time, I can vouch that the Muji can survive being toss around in a bag.
Must make a correction, the Muji ink feathers and bleed through cheap COPY PAPER rather, not so much on a piece of normal notebook paper. I finished my Staples notebook and took a National Brand Eye-Ease notebook from the office supply room interim. I find my Staples notebook paper was a lot thinner compare to National Brand. So the Muji ink didn't feather or bled through the yellow notebook paper. I'll upload pictures once I get home.
1) The pen does not feel cheap
2) The pen writes very smooth
3) Writes on the wet side, this is good and bad because I personally like wet pens but bad since I am left handed
4) The pen looks very sleek and professional
1) The converter I bought fits very loosely in the pen and feels like it will fall out. The cartridge that came with the pen fits nicely though and i was able to fix the looseness of the converter by placing half of a pen spring and an end cap to a bic pen behind the converter.
2) The threaded section is very short and feels like it would come unscrewed very easily
3) The pens grip isnt that grippy but it works
4) The part beneath the nib is plastic and most cheap pens will have this plastic part but I don't like it. OVERALL GREAT PEN, WOULD RECOMEND
